Do you know your biomass from your solar thermal? This year is set to be a key one for microgeneration, so NICEIC has launched its very own jargon buster.
The guide provides clear definitions of key terms commonly used in the industry and is a useful tool for those considering installing renewable energy devices on their homes.
"More than 100,000 UK homes currently have microgeneration installations," said NICEIC's cheif opeating officer, Emma McCarthy.
" We expect this number to rise rapidly in 2011, and predict it won't be long until private residential homeowners learn about feed-in tariffs and the incentives available.
" To those not in the know, microgeneration can seem a very complicated and confusing world. We hope this will give people a clearer understanding and give them the confidence and courage to engage with microgeneration products and installations"
